Possible suspect in court for unrelated charge

Posted: Updated:
Yakima, WA -  A possible suspect in a New Year's Day murder in Grandview is charged with gun possession for another incident that happened a few hours earlier.
     Grandview Police Detectives say they questioned Jose Garcia for several hours a few days after the gang related shooting that killed 16-year-old Isaac Hinojosa early on New Year's morning.
     Garcia was also shot in the melee.
     Court documents reveal that police found gun residue on his hand, but Garcia told detectives that was from firing his pistol into the air in Outlook shortly after the New Year.
     Police found shell casings in that area to back up the claim.
